A landlocked nation of the African continent, the regions of the Central African Republic feature flat or rolling plateau savannahs at an elevation of 1,640 feet above mean sea level; most of which form the northern half of the country and are located within the World Wildlife Fund’s East Sudanese savanna eco-region. Two thirds of this country lies within the fertile basins of the Ubangi River, which is the right bank tributary eventually merging with the Congo River. Although, this country displays a wide potential for tourism, it has failed to utilize on these opportunities mostly due to lack of proper planning and development.
Blessed with a general tropical climate, almost 8 percent of the Central African Republic land is covered by dense forests largely accumulated on the southern side of the country including the Manovo-Gounda St Floris National Park and the Dzanga-Sangha Reserve. Featuring a variety of natural tourist attractions like rivers, mountains, waterfalls, and a charming diversity of flora and fauna, this central African nation is currently passing through political instability and turmoil.
